Today I Sought Peace and Found It
Yesterday was a very frustrating computer day. Something that should have taken no more than half an hour took two hours because every page took an eternity to load, so it seemed. I had to use four programs to process one order, and all depend on the internet working right. I was very glad to get home.
Today has been more peaceful but I had several projects to work on. When the gardener showed up, I knew I needed to get out for a walk, so I headed out a country road not far from home. I got some wonderful photos that should supply blog material for several days, but most of all I found peace and quiet. I was a few miles east of town and after taking a few photos of trees and rural scenery, I drove past Sculpterra Winery and saw it was open – not usual for a Tuesday. On my way back to town I stopped there, and almost no one was there who was not inside the tasting room.
This offered me the opportunity to get clear views of the sculptures in the sculpture garden for taking photos. But the best part was the walk around the gardens and the walk down a road between the vineyards and a farm with goats, horses, and burros. They decided to come and check me out. The goat was funny, but I decided the burro made a clearer photo for the top of this article.
This is the quiet vineyard. It was quiet except for birds singing. It was like a soothing balm to my spirit to soak in the silence. It appeared in the sky that a storm might be approaching, but so far it hasn't started to rain. I hope it will tomorrow.
Eventually I knew it was about time for the tasting room to close, and since I didn't want to be locked in the gates I decided to turn back. As I approached the tasting room back door on the way to my car, this is what I saw.
I got the distinct impression that these kitties were usually given some food after the tasting room closed and they were waiting for their handouts. Do you think so?
